You will find our facility in the student dormitory building Merketal, which is surrounded by parks, forests, fields and the nature conservation area „ Schanzengraben“.
Children should feel secure and accepted when they come here with their parents. We see each child as an active participant in their own development and look after them, encourage and support them as they face “the world”. With that, we work based on the situational approach and include the children in making decisions.
In close-to-nature experience- and play rooms, the children can try things out and educate themselves to their own needs. The children receive enough possibilities to move around outdoors. Inspired by the project “Children’s Worlds”, traces of the children and their families can be found all around the play room areas.
Bilingual education and upbringing (German- English) make up a solid portion of our work and is experienced together with German and English native speakers. Lingual diversity is considered and taken as natural here.
We work close together with the parents, where the joint-responsibilities for the development of the children are placed in the center.

little play garden near the housing area
The newly renovated half-timbered house is located near the campus of the Bauhaus University and was recently opened in October 2011. On two floors, up to 30 children can play, examine and learn to their own individual interests.
The natural garden belonging to the day care center supplies the children with plenty of room to experiment and measure their own natural strength. The nearby located Ilmpark and city center of Weimar offer multiple opportunities to explore and discover. Inspired by the situational approach, educational possibilities oriented around the needs of the children were created and our core concepts grew and developed even more. Incited by the project “Children’s Worlds”, we consider a close cooperation with the children’s parents a necessity in order to put the joint responsibility of the children’s development in the center point. It is also our goal to establish an “educational partnership”.

From 17th March 2014, Studierendenwerk Thüringen will be offering a flexible childcare service in Amalienstraße 13 in cooperation with Bauhaus University and the Liszt School of Music. Students, as well as employees of Studierendenwerk, the university or the music school, can leave their children in the experienced care of student assistants at Bauhäuschen ('Little Bauhaus') for between two to four hours per day, for a maximum of ten hours a week. This allows parents to attend seminars, visit the library, make use of office hours or simply get everyday chores done. For stress-free work and studying, the opening hours are from 8:00-20:00 Monday-Thursday and 8:00-14:00 on Fridays. Children are able to enjoy two large, well-lit rooms, which are split into play and sleeping areas.
Places are booked in two-hour time slots, which can also be reserved over longer periods of time. Payment takes place in advance at the INFOtake Weimar at a cost of €4.00 per two-hour slot for students and €6.50 for employees.
